Sparkle Hair Clips Vintage Downton Abbey Inspired

Sparkle Hair Clips Vintage Downton Abbey Inspired

I love that hair accessories are so popular now. They add so much to an outfit and can even take a bad hair day into a fabulous hair day! One thing I love about popular hair accessories is that a lot of them are vintage inspired. There isn’t a better place to look for vintage style inspiration than Downton Abbey. I knew that making vintage inspired hair clips would be the perfect activity to do at my Downton Abbey girls’ day. 

Vintage Inspired Sparkle Hair Clips

Rather than have a girls’ night, I had friends come over while our kids were still at school. It was perfect! We were able to watch all of the Downton Abbey characters that we love be back together on the screen. I love that the Downton Abbey DVD is an expansion from the series, not just a random Downton Abbey story. Getting my friends together to talk about our favorite characters and to gush over Lady Mary’s wardrobe was so fun!

Glitter Hair Clips


To start, paint the glue onto the top of the hair clip. Be generous with the amount of glue used. Next, dump the glitter on top of the glue, while the clip is over a paper plate.

Gently press the glitter onto the glue. If there are holes in the glitter that is sticking, pour more glitter onto the clips and lightly press it on.

Let the glue dry completely before wearing them. Once the glue dries, it is time to accessorize!
